... 28 August
After some rude awakenings (not as many as yesterday but nevertheless) we ventured to
our next destination. This part of the Smeralda coast is just peppered with mega yachts with the occassional sailing yacht being tossed around in their wake.
We settled on anchoring in Calla di Volpe where there are lots of mega yachts anchored as well as a very expensive hotel with basic rooms starting from £1000 per night.
... 26 August
Left the anchorage mid morning and headed south. We popped into Porto Cervo out of
curiosity – the marina is supposedly one of the most expensive in the world.
Then anchored in cove not too far away which was full of day trippers and mega yachts.
On the way in we passed the Maltese Falcon which is reported to be the 3rd largest sailing vessel in the world.
This anchorage is lovely – beautiful turquoise coloured water.
... a great sail in to
our destination. I know I say this a lot about the coastlines we pass but the Sardinian coast is something special even from a distance from shore.
We got to the Bonifacio Straights where we had the mountains of Sardinia on the
starboard side and the mountains of Corisca on the port side of us.
The anchorage we chose to stay in only had two other yachts, so quite peaceful ...
... moving faster than the others but all looking out for each other. Rosanne and Silvana both have their hands on their hips and are plodding along in front of us ...gone are the beach babes with laughter and giggles instead they are part of a mountain goat group plodding along pausing to drink to keep hydrated.... they are not smiling! Haha I don't help the situation by shooting photos; they are constantly telling me ...
... SantaTeresa in Sardinia.....about 1 hour.
Santa Teresa is on the on the northern most tip of Sardinia, and the coast. Of Corsica can be seen from this mainland. The town has a population of 5000 but increases this time of the year to 10,000 to 15,000. [PHOTO_ID_R=santa-teresa
We arrived at about 5pm and took a tour of the town centre.
Dinner that night was cod fish pieces and muscles with a cummin sauce and salad.
